  1. Oh gosh I am sorry to hear that. Cross fingers that the outcome is positive for you. The waiting game is a horrible one. Keep us posted. x
  2. Does anybody have any advice about Japanese or Korean skin care. Apparently from what I am hearing on beauty forums, they have amazing products. But I don't know which products or companies are best to look at. TIA.
  3. They look great already! Hope you keep healing smoothly. x
  4. Oh gosh it is the waiting period that is the worst! Hopefully it is just a cyst but you are doing the right thing in getting it checked. My GP sent me off for a mammogram + ultrasound this year when she thought she felt a lump. It turned out to be a small fold in my implant. Hopefully it is something like this for you. Please keep us posted. x
  5. Zipped or button up tops/jumpers. Tracksuit pants or leggings. It is amazing how much we engage our chest muscles when we do even simple activities. The first 5 days will be the worst. But once you turn the corner, you will feel great. Good luck with your op!
  6. RE moods after augmentation, that is more the mind adjusting to having implants and bigger boobs. Plus dealing with the pain, lack of sleep etc. There are some old threads on here about health impact after implants. Some ladies have discussed their journey with implant illness.
  7. I would think you would be fine. You'll probably still have a bit of morning boob by then, but most of the initial pain should be gone. Your incisions will be closed. Check with your surgeon though.
  8. Thanks so much for that. I'll have a look at those. I am just sticking with the Neutragena one at the moment. If I find something better, I'll keep you posted. x
  9. Have you gone back to the original surgeon for advice? From the pic, I think your boobs look amazing. They look really natural.
  10. That is a tough question because I did the same thing when I was doing my initial research. I think it also depends what suits your body shape and how many cc's your anatomy will allow. I just knew I wanted to go from a 10AA cup to a C cup. I got 270cc under the muscle......this has taken me to a small C cup. I am a gym junkie and while sometimes I get booby greed, I am happy with my boobs. I am also in my mid 40's and I didn't want to go too big. I have had my boobs for 5 years now and I couldn't be happier.
  11. Wow that is awesome you will only be $500 out of pocket. I can feel your excitement! x
  12. Day surgery but I needed my husband to help me with everything in the first 3 days - bathing, going to the toilet etc. I have had laparoscopies etc and my body does not cope with anaesthetic. I had under the muscle and even though the painkillers helped, I still was very uncomfortable. On the 5th day, I really turned a corner and began to feel human again.
  13. I have textured Silimed implants which are now no longer used here in Australia. I also got my implants 5 years ago. I just have had a mammogram + ultrasound and the implants are fine. I understand there are risks with this implant but at this stage I cannot afford to replace them. I will just keep a close look out on my health.
  14. Don't listen to strangers who sit behind a computer and like to criticise others. I think your nose looks fine and quite masculine. But if it really bothers you, then I would suggest to go and see a few reputable plastic surgeons who can give you proper advice.
  15. 6 weeks post op is early days! It can take up to a year for the D & F process to finish. You would still have some swelling and the muscles would still be tight after surgery. Try to give it time. x
  16. I went with some pictures I found off the net of what kind of boobs I would like. The surgeon did say my anatomy would determine what he could do. But we were in agreement with a teardrop implant as I wanted the natural look and I didn't have much breast tissue to start off with. I asked about sizing and what would suit me. I asked how much time I would need off from work. I asked how long the implant would last and the percentage of rotation with a teardrop implant. I did take a friend with me for support. Five years on and I have no regrets. All the best for your consult.
  17. I started off as a 10AA cup (aka flatter than flat!). I got 270cc under the muscle which took me to a small C cup. So if you are starting off with not much breast tissue then I would say yes.
  18. I am 44 years old and I use The Ordinary's product which is the caffeine eye solution. I also use The Body Shop's vitamin C serum + Neutragena's eye wrinkle cream. I also use a face primer + eye primer before I wear makeup and it does make a big difference to the skin. I haven't gone down the cosmetic surgery track for eyes. I also ensure I drink plenty of water during the day as well as having a nutritious diet to help with the skin. I also use a collagen powder in my daily Nutribullet. I am still getting wrinkles of course...…..but I find with my dry skin I have to work harder with helping it stay hydrated. Hope that helps a bit.
  19. My question to myself when I was so scared and unsure was "If I get to the end of my life, would I have regrets about not getting my boobs done?". I then knew the answer. Everything in life is scary...…...particularly having kids...…..getting married...…..driving in the car every day. You have done your research, you have seen 6 surgeons and you have obviously been really sensible gaining all the information you need in order to make the best decision for your body. As you said, no one can make this decision for you. Maybe you just need more time and that's okay too. For me, I got sick of feeling like sh!t and that in the end outweighed the fear.
  20. I had the exact same feelings as you prior to surgery and I also had researched having a BA for many years. But after breastfeeding 3 kids and having 10AA cup boobs on a skinny body, I felt like crap. In the end, I made the decision to go ahead and so at the age of 39, I got implants. I went for a natural look with teardrops under the muscle and am now a 10C cup. I have had my implants for nearly 5 years, and I have absolutely no regrets. Life is too short to feel like crap. Plus my kids have a happy and confident Mum. x
  21. I had to have a mammogram (+ ultrasound) last week due to my GP finding a lump in one of my breasts. I have never had a mammogram before and the medical staff could not have been nicer about the situation. They were so compassionate. I did have to sign a paper about agreeing to the very small chance my implants could rupture due to the mammogram. But I have silicone so I wasn't too worried. Plus I have some amazing women around me who needed to have their breasts checked for their lumps and they both had aggressive cancer leading to mastectomies. So I didn't want to muck around with it. RE rupture, if I thought that I would probably go for ultrasound as my first go to.
